sounds nice, but implementing this would be tough, and it wouldn't be so commonly used.
Have color picker instead of or as well as the RGB value text fields
I'll think of that, RGB values differ from float-based, so I'll have to calculate them.
Make Sound a menu that includes textual descriptions of sounds instead of text field expecting a number
In thanks on General Info tab, spell it Silb instead of Slib
Resize window when on General Info tab so there is not huge blank area, or maybe
Bug (probably Darwine only): when switching tabs, the whole window moves down the same distance as the height of the title bar
It's probably Darwine bug, I've changed UI a little.

Not sure what you mean - If you want to enter a line break type \n or \r, it's equivalent for that.
Automatically work around 10 or 13 character bug by appending #, without distracting user by showing it to them
When truncating message because more than 128 characters, remember all of the message, but put a caution symbol next to the line in the list or color it red, and truncate the message only when saving it to a file. An alert would pop up either right after entering the too-long message or when clicking on the line again or on the caution symbol that would explain that the message is too long.
Text box is length-limited to 128 characters now.

Changed it already.
Have tooltip text for most fields, explaining that Cam X means Camera X coordinate, up means the line of dialogue appears at the top of the screen, hostile means whatever it means, etc.
Dedit was dedicated to windows users who are unable to edit dialogs standard way. It's not meant to do everything for them. Little learning (reading wiki and forums) will improve understanding of dialogues and dedit itself. I'm trying to reach fair amount of work between what I've done and what end-user does ;]
Creating Dedit is not so easy as it seems ;P

Not to wider public. Source code is very dirty, and has small comments in Polish, so I'm a little ashamed of it (the way it looks and works). If you will really insist - I'll send you the source, but I urge you to wait until Dedit is finished, and then I'll publish map-file format with comments what each byte does (I'm writing it while discovering).

I'll probalby be finishing this soon, so I can get to work on my Lu campaign. I've made this tool because I needed it. And I'm sharing it because: why not.
